How do you expect to boldly go where no one has gone before without a comfortable recliner chair? Well, I’m not talking about actually going anywhere, but whatever you do in your living room, even if you do plan on taking a “trip” with some immersive video game or movie, or maybe with the help of illegal substances (who am I to judge), comfy living room recliners will make your experience much more enjoyable.
Think of your living room as your command bridge, your recliner as the captain’s chair, and you of course are the captain. This way, whenever you come home after a hard day, you know there is a comfortable spot, reserved just for you to relax in front of the TV and maybe have a beer or two.
But, with the increasing number of styles, shapes, and sizes of living room recliners available on the market and the range of different features as well, choosing the right one can be a serious task. Not only that it has to be comfortable enough for you, you must also meet your wife’s aesthetic criteria to make sure she doesn’t throw it away the first chance she gets, just because she thinks it’s ugly. You also want it to withstand daily abuse without falling apart which means quality is another important factor.
Anyway, here are a few tips that might make your job of choosing a new recliner a lot more easy.
First, you must choose the right size. Have in mind that your physical space is limited and you need to be able to fit your new recliner in your living room. And not only that. Your recliner chair must also fit the shape of your body in order to have maximum comfort.
Although you are more likely to go for the cheaper option, you also need to make sure that it will be worth it in the long run. The quality of fabrics, leather, metal, wood, and so on, will determine how long your chair will last, but they are also a key factor for the comfort of the recliner. A quality recliner chair is an investment that should last you for years to come and you shouldn’t hesitate to throw in some extra money.
Consider your style preferences. And when I say “your”, what I actually mean is your wife’s style preferences. For many people, fitting a bulky recliner in their home décor seems impossible. But with the variety of designs and materials available today, you will surely find the recliner that fits your living room décor, your wife’s taste, and of course, fulfills its primary purpose – providing you with comfort and support.
And finally, you should prepare a list of features that you want to be included in your recliner chair since today there is a huge variety of features available. From an articulating headrest to a built in refrigerator.
